Malcolm Omari Hill Scholarship Fund, Inc History
Malcolm Omari Hill was only 23 years old when he passed in a fatal car accident. Omari did not return home one Saturday morning, after having a good time with friends after work on Friday night. Omari tragically did not survive the car accident. From that point forward, the lives of Omari’s parents Toni and Eva Hill would never be the same.
More details about the accident came to light. Omari was out on the town with friends. At 4:00 AM, the driver lost control of the car. Omari was a back seat passenger and not wearing a seat belt. The car was travelling at a high rate of speed when the driver lost control of the car. Omari and another young man were ejected from the car and died upon impact.
With this tragic event, Toni and Eva learned that 6 to 10 teens/young adults are killed in car accidents daily. This tragedy helped Toni and Eva find a new life mission to provide FREE instructional safe driving classes for teens and young adults. Toni and Eva have been dedicated to the Malcolm Omari Hill Scholarship Fund Inc. since 2011.
